Acceptance of foriegn culture

9 May
Italy 3
Italy 3

I have recently returned from visiting Italy with little Floperv and have once again found myself in a situation several times feeling very frustrated and aggressive. The reason being that I am still English and with that comes a natural nature to Que. To be polite and to generally try to be pleasant to people. What I experienced in Italy was a very near opposite of these basic ideals I tend to live by. My blood began to boil and whilst waiting in the que for the plane I began to have Italians forming up on my flanks, obviously waiting to step in front of me or to step into the que at any moment. My hand was shaking and from nowhere came this beast, ready to fling burning coffee into everyone’s faces. It was only the calming influence of my company that saved the blister’s from the Italian buggers.

What I am curious of clearly is if really this was an act of aggression from a misunderstanding or intollerance of anothers culture or are they just rude buggers who need a slap. What really constitutes intollerance?

And now for some pictures I took whilst in Italy. Enjoy

Playing with Lighting

29 Apr

I was playing with lighting effects on a photo I took the other day. Here’s some of the results. I’ll probably create a few different variations. This is very basic stuff but it’s cute 😀

New Year. New Goals?

2 Jan

First of – A happy new year to all those that read this.

Ok so we’re finally officially into a new year, I know it’s only been a short time but I was kind of hoping with all the fuss thing’s would seem different – not just more expensive…

A few good changes have happened this year. I finally found some fish that my female Molly won’t chase and kill so the fish tank is looking a lot fuller and my molly seems happier for the company. I also was given a present this year that fit’s my lifestyle greatly. A paint-your-own cow. I know it’s not exciting but I now have another addition to my window sill garden I have developed over the last couple of months, mainly out of boredom but partly I guess out of a desire to make the most of the little space I do have. Living in a flat on a high street means I don’t have any garden space so I’ve made the most of the situation from scratch and grown myself a grassy area. Check out the pictures below 😀 also feel free to add me to FACEBOOK

The lengths we would go

8 Oct

Yesterday I faced a major dilema. After getting home from work Monday I had the shock of a lifetime that kept me up all night. I have one of these external backup drives that you plug into your of and put all your important data onto. This for me includes every single picture I have taken over the last few years. Having a brain like a sieve it’s nice to have something to look at to prompt my memory. Photo’s are one if the most important things to me. One of my worst fears is actually loosing my memory and not being able to recall those importbst moments, those times that have shaped me as a person. School, family, friends, travel.
So clearly it’s important for me to protect these as best as I can. So after pluggin my drive into my computer and finding out that it wouldn’t load I began to freak out. If the drive is broke it will cost me around half of my travel savings to recover them. So what do I do. Could I really go to such lengths? Could I forget all my old memories in favour of making new ones or vise versa. I was at a split point.

Lucky I work in IT. Having contacts with cool gadgets I might still be able to recover something.

Whilst trying to access my data me and my geeky friend were saying it would be a good idea to also put copies on cd’s which I ultimately agreed with. And then, with that prompting realized that was exactly what I was already doing. I guess I should take a picture of me backing up photo’s to cd.

Capturing a moment

7 Sep

Photo’s and Word’s. That’s real art. The capture of a moment, a feeling. So perfectly.

I love the discovery of something that so sums up what I’m thinking, how I’m feeling.

I hope Gamb doesn’t mind me quoting her: Continue reading
